The Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) is a five-member board. Each member is appointed for a five-year term, provided they haven’t been appointed to fill a vacancy resulting from a resignation, at which time they will be appointed to fulfill the remaining balance of that term for which they were appointed. The ZBA has the authority to grant variances to the Zoning Ordinance adopted by the Town of Lumberland. The Board also has the responsibility to render decisions on interpretation of the Zoning Ordinance.


The Town Board appoints all the members listed on the municipal boards. Each member is appointed, with their duties on the respective board established by New York State, Sullivan County and Town Laws. Each member sitting on the boards and committees are to act in the best interest of the Town and the residents they are serving. They are expected to render their decisions on any matters before them without political and resident pressure. Board meetings are open to the public as provided for under the New York State Open Meeting Law. Public attendance is encouraged and welcomed.
